Nottingham Forest have finally completed the signing of veteran midfielder George Boateng.
The 35-year-old, who was at Greek side Skoda Xanthi last season, agreed terms last week and has now passed a medical.
The ex-Netherlands man has made 383 league appearances in England for Coventry, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough and Hull, whom he left in 2010.
He told the club website: "I didn't expect this but I was very happy to get the chance to join a club like Forest."
He added: "I've spent all my time in England in the Premier League so this is something new for me but I would love to think I could get back into the top flight.
"I'm not here to win friends. I will do everything I can to win games - that's what matters to me."
